- Mahrez could be a fully fledged Manchester City player before the end of this week
- The Leicester winger is currently set to undergo a medical in the coming days
- The two clubs agreed upon a transfer fee of $78 million
Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has finally been granted his eagerly awaited move to Manchester City.
Mahrez has been desperate to complete a transfer from Leicester City to his dream club since the start of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign but his attempts were frustrated by the Foxes.
According to Sky Sports, the 27-year-old Algerian will undergo a medical this week with all other aspects of the contract between the two clubs already agreed upon.
Leicester finally consented to a $78 million offer from Etihad after initially asking for $100 million in the January window, a price City considered way to high for the Desert Foxes player.
Despite the player having formerly handed in an official transfer request back in January, the Foxes declined to sell him.
And Mahrez did not take the rejection well refusing to play or train for some time and even scooped up fines fined for his boycott.
Regardless of being at odds with the Foxes, Mahrez managed to score 13 goals in 41 appearances last season and Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola feels that he is the missing cog in his team.
